The US military: the arrest of a pilot in connection with an attack on a base in Syria

The US military has revealed that military law enforcement authorities have arrested an Air Force personnel in connection with an April attack on a US military base in northern Syria that wounded 4 Americans.


In a statement to CNN, US Air Force spokeswoman Anne Stefanik said the pilot was arrested on June 16 as part of an ongoing investigation, and the pilot has been placed in pretrial detention.


CNN first reported earlier this month that the US military was investigating whether one of its personnel placed explosives in an "insider" attack on the small US "Green Village" base in northern Syria that wounded 4 service members in April.
